LAS VEGAS ( KLAS ) – Uh-oh: are we picking on the HOV lanes again?
Well, maybe a little, but there *is* a closure of *part* of the High Occupancy Vehicle lane on the southbound 15 for the next couple of nights. So the joke would be: what happens if they have an H-O-V lane closure and nobody notices??
But seriously: the Nevada Dept of Transportation does have the HOV out of service on the south 15 from 10pm, and scheduled to run until 5 each morning until Friday morning between Spring Mountain and Flamingo. That’s not a long stretch of freeway, but taking away any part of the 15 in that area can sure slow things down, so, yeah: it’s worth bringing up.
NDOT’s Tony Illia tells us:
“The temporary closures are needed for bridge joint repairs as part of routine maintenance.”
By the way, “What’s Driving You Crazy” has gotten *several* emails about the HOV lanes, and Tony & the NDOT folks have been very good about getting back to me. Some viewers are very specific about HOV exits and entrance and other issues, and I want to be able to give each email the time it deserves. so, as they say on tv, stay tuned.
Buckle up, drive carefully and put down that phone!
